Posted on August 9, 2020 97-pound white takes over first in WMO Capt. George Steller brought Frank Criscola s Crisdel from Brielle Yacht Club to the White Marlin Open scales at Ocean City, Md. shortly after they opened at 4 p. m. with a white marlin that had some heft to it. The scales remain open until 9 15, and I ll add a blog then if anything changes before tomorrow s last day.
Posted on August 8, 2020 WMO down to last two days As noted in the previous blog, there were major changes in the big money white marlin division of the WMO today and I suspect there will be more to come as the contest wraps up with the two days added on due to the uncertainty as to how long the tropical storm would last. Drillin Billin was the big winner today as their 77-pound white pushed Hook Settle s 74-pounder out of first and sets up a 2.
I m sure like most of you we are without power. Make sure you allow extra time to get to the boat All traffic lights in Atlantic Highlands are out as of 11 00am and you may have to drive a extra mile to make the u turn hopefully by tomorrow the power is back up See you soon.
Posted on August 5, 2020 WMO Open will be humming the next four days Though the tropical storm passed by quickly, only 35 of the 433 boats entered in the White Marlin Open at Ocean City, Maryland opted to fight the remaining seas today with four days of predicted good weather ahead of them in which to utilize their three fishing days. A revision of the white marlin release count for Monday brought that figure up to 11 plus the one boated for a total of 12 whites that day along with four eligible 50-pound minimum) tuna.
Posted on August 4, 2020 Tough first day at WMO The 42 out of 433 boats that fished during the first day of the White Marlin Open didn t find much for the scales which closed at 9 15. The only white marlin brought in didn t meet the 70-pound minimum, and there were only a few qualifying tuna.
